are you a boy? your clothes are boy clothes.
are you a girl? your clothes are girl clothes.
are you outside the binary of boy and girl? so are your clothes.
did someone just tell you your clothes don’t match your gender identity? they are a trashcan and their clothes are trashcan clothes.
So I’ve noticed some of us have been getting our proverbial boxers in a bunch over the word “transmisogyny.” “We’re being excluded!” you say.
Yes, you are being excluded - from the abhorrent amount violence and persecution trans women face. They face a lot more violence and nasty stereotypes than us; those don’t affect us a bit, and are formed from an intersection of transphobia and misogyny.
So yes, transphobia is still a word; no one’s saying we don’t experience transphobia. Our sisters just needed a word to talk about all the crap they have to face that we don’t. So stop whining and check your male privilege, bros.

Practice By Using the Following Phrases When the Opportunity Arrises:
"I’m not interested."
"(Please) Leave me alone."
"I’d rather you not."
"That doesn’t interest me at all."
"You need to stop."
"That’s not what I said."
"I would like some privacy."
"That doesn’t work for me."
"I’d like to be by myself."
"I’m going to leave now."
These words and phrases might evoke thoughts of reacting to someone bringing unwanted sexual advances. But how can we expect girls and women to be able to say no in such extreme circumstances when we’ve been socialized to avoid confrontation in such “small” circumstances as when a man is talking us when we’d rather be left alone?
You can practice exercising and nurturing your assertiveness (and confidence) by incorporating phrases like this in your day-to-day life.
